Screensaver

A screensaver is a computer program initially designed to prevent phosphor burn-in on CRT and plasma computer monitors by blanking the screen or filling it with moving images or patterns when the computer is not in use.

Today’s screensavers are used primarily for entertainment, security or to display system status information.
